    Cut out looks good, what about putting an MG ZR trim around it, might need to make it a little bigger ??

    Like this maybe too big though ?

    I've got twin boxes with chrome tailpipes to fit on my 3.2 Elite and will also need to cut the trim - how easy was it do do, is the plastic hard or soft to cut?
    Funny I was also thinking of something like MG Z surrounds to fit on mine as well, but the the rear trim looks too contoured for it to fit.
    Cars looking good.

    Hi mate, the trim cuts quite easily with a stanley knife..just take your time and only make small cuts...I had to use abit of guess work when I did mine, keep offering the pipe up til you are happy ?? and I still aint happy with it, Although I do like the idea of colour coding, but due to bieng skint at the moment Ill probably just go for the mg type trim....hope this helps...let me know how you get on and dont forget some piccies...Cheers Bob...
